“Poke” is the word of the day today. I had no idea what I was going to write for the prompt until I went out for a walk with Alex earlier. The answer to my conundrum was Nosehair.
If you’ve been around for forever, you might remember a tree I dubbed “Nosehair” for the branch it had growing out of its face. Yes, the tree has a face. I’m sure the only person who won’t be able to see it is Guy Thair.
Nosehair had a few posts dedicated to him–here’s one, and here’s another. You should check them out. They’re quite amusing if I do say so myself.
Today, though, getting back to my post, I found that someone had poked Nosehair with stick, sticking it in his mouth.
You really have to zoom in to see the stick in his mouth (close to the blue car) in the picture above, but here’s a closeup:
Does this mean Nosehair is eating himself? Has he been turned into some sort of Ouroboros?
Something to ponder …

It’s just a toothpick … he’s being dentally conscious … (trees do find it very difficult to floss … 😉 )

The pileated woodpeckers are taking out one of my dead trees with an interesting face. It did not have nose hair, though.

That might be the most interesting poke of all. I love finding faces in trees. Although, some are scary.

Some trees , like Nosehair, really have a character of their own, like Ydrasil in Agatha Christie ‘s “The Hollow”
